Joinery Camborne

Now, some people could perhaps be a bit bewildered regarding the precise meaning of the phrase "carpenters and joiners" or "carpentry and joinery", and in fairness those phrases are a bit misleading. In fact there've been quite a few times when I have heard folks ask "what precisely are the differences between a carpenter and joiner?" and naturally there may be substantial differences. Though now and again you'll meet a craftsman in Camborne who is genuinely a "carpenter and joiner", more often than not he'll be one or the other. So just what is the difference between a joiner and carpenter? Well a quick reply might be that a joiner plies his trade in a workshop, while a carpenter does his work on site, for example, a joiner will construct a window frame in his joinery workshop employing machinery, hand tools and jigs, while a carpenter will fit the window frame into the window opening on site. Each sort of craftsman will be aware of something about the others skills and yet would likely not be able to exchange places without getting some extra training. To confuse the issue even further, teenagers wanting to get a carpentry apprenticeship in Camborne, will have to sit a City and Guilds examination in "Carpentry and Joinery" but may actually be employed as either a joiner or carpenter ie either be working in a joinery works or on site.

There might also be some other tasks around the home that your chosen Camborne carpenter can assist you with, even some which you may believe would require the attention of a different specialist. Fitting ornamental coving around the walls of your rooms may be one example of the sort of work that he might be capable of doing. You'd presume that a plasterer or specialist coving fitter would be the person for this task, but if you have a decent carpenter at hand, he will be just as efficient at tackling this. Having a thorough understanding of how angles work is essential with coving, and carpenters learn all about angles when learning roofing, so these kind of calculations should come as second nature. In some instances wooden coving is necessary, so a carpenter or joiner will be precisely the person for the task.
